A hop-citrus heavy pale ale. The beauty of this beer is in the finish, smooth and bubbly and with a really slight malt taste. Dry finish, making it great for a palate cleansing beer.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours slightly hazy deep gold. Two finger off white head, some lacing, slight retention. Aroma pine and caramel. Taste is nicely balanced moderate malty sweet, moderately bitter. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of grass, caramel, nectarine, pine and toast. A very good APA.

yngwie (15188) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle, at Ashley’s, Ann Arbor. A clear dark golden beer with a small off-white head. It’s got a light bread touch in the aroma, with fruityness and some pine cones, a tad boring actually. It’s full bodied, smooth and semi-dry, with a nice carbonation level. Caramel, a nice bitterness, some pine cones and a generic fruityness in the flavor. Some metallic notes on the very end. Decent indeed, but I find it a bit malty. 150615

Bottle. Copper in color with medium white, foamy head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is fruity with some citrus, rounded out with some malty sweetness. Just enough bitterness for a crisp finish. This is a really enjoyable pale ale.

Drank on tap into a pint glass at the Tipsy Turtle. Pours golden with slight white head and decent carbonation. Tastes of hops but not overpowering with a nice crisp, piney flavor.
